Dedication

To God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Acknowledgment

I acknowledge Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Preface

Before the idea of this book was conceived, it has always been my desire to motivate people on career development; my belief is that despite the shortage of employment in the country, people who know what they are doing will definitely get jobs. If you adequately prepare, you will impress the employers in both aptitude tests and interviews.

I have this passion for people to get jobs to enable them get married and settle down of which numerous people have benefited. I have organised seminars and trainings for youth in my neighbourhood just to ensure that they are gainfully employed, unfortunately a good percentage of these people do not know the importance of some relevant issues about career processes, for instance, some people don’t know the benefit of graduating with good results or adequate preparation for Career Aptitude Tests and subsequent interviews hence the conception and writing this book- Career Development. The book is tailored to guide people from their primary education to the pinnacle of their career, even when they retire this book will still be relevant to guide them in managing their subsequent  life endeavours.

Its purpose is also for people to know how agriculture, industrialisation and export can lead to the nation’s wealth we need. I believe that the trio of agriculture, industrialisation and export will take any nation to the Promised Land where the nation flows with milk and honey. If our nation can be fully industrialized to the extent of exporting the goods we produce or assemble here in Nigeria, then our foreign exchange and balance of payment positions will be favourable, unemployment and poverty will become history relatively.

CONCEPT OF CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Careers England has defined Career development as the lifelong process of managing progression in learning and work.

It is also a lifelong process of managing education, work, leisure and numerous transitions towards a personally-determined and evolving future.

It is the continuous process of managing your life. It involves developing the skills and knowledge that enable you plan and make informed decisions about education, training, career choice, career progression as well as business management.

The quality of this process significantly determines the nature and quality of individuals’ lives: the kind of people they become, the people they meet, the sense of purpose they have and the income at their disposal. It equally determines the contribution they make to their families, communities, the societies they are part of and their nations.

In his book The Richest Man in Babylon George S. Clason asserts that our prosperity as a nation depends on the personal financial prosperity of each of us as individuals".

Career development will provide you with what you require to empower yourself for career, business and ultimately all-round success that will eventually determine the nation’s financial prosperity.

The Careers England, the European Commission on Career Development, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the World Bank have recognised the importance of career development as of great value to individuals and nations. They have further suggested that schools should play important role in this respect and individuals should also receive advice, guidance and support from qualified practitioners at a distance or face to face.

You need to achieve your desired goal, make a mark in life as well as grow in all areas of life. Some people’s trouble in life is inability to differentiate between up and down escalator. Career development helps to differentiate them and put you on the up escalator where you climb up automatically in the career or enterprise you desire.

Many young folks want to get married and settle down but find this difficult because they are either not employed or underemployed, and their dream partners are not interested in them because nobody wants a spouse who could be a liability. In another class, their counterparts who are gainfully employed have what could be considered a pleasant problem of choosing one out of multitude admirers.

As a marriage counselor, I am sometimes short of words over what to say to the first group at marriage counseling sessions, but what I repeatedly
